Just Friends? 5 Photos Of Akothee And Her Manager That Continue To Fuel Romance Rumours

Kenya’s wealthiest singer Akothee, real name, Esther Akoth seems to be doing very well for herself in terms of music and family.

Other than music, Akothee is a doting mother to 5 amazing children, three girls and two boys who are from different fathers and has in the past professed to enjoying her life as a single mother.

Akothee was set to walk down the aisle back in 2016 and was even expecting twins with her then Swiss fiancé, but sadly, she collapsed at a Geneva train station and miscarried.

Akothee has since picked up the pieces and has been very active in the music industry, dropping hit after hit, though her recent song Tucheze didn’t perform so well compared to the previous ones.

The sassy singer has a lot on her plate, from taking care of her kids to working on her music, traveling and managing her businesses, but one person lifts this load from Akothee, her manager, by the name Nelson Oyugi aka Nelly.

The two have a very good working relationship and the manager has been able to help her propel her music career to greater heights, but he’s just not a manager, he’s a very close friend and in the last couple of months, there have been allegations that they could be more than friends.

Akothe and Nelly are always spending time together whether it’s about music, events or tours for Akothee or family celebrations, you will never miss him around. Nelly refers to Akothee as his queen and their recent photos just keep fueling rumours about their romance.

“The warmest wishes to a special person in my life, who has the biggest heart in the world. Thank you for being with me through thick and thin, you know you can always count on me.Whenever I count my blessings I thank God that I met you.You will always shine like the sun and spread joy and love to everyone around you,” Nelly told Akothee on her birthday.

None of them has come out to speak out on whether it’s all about the work or whether there’s something more. Still, men and women can still be close friends without any romantic feelings.

Check out some of their photos that will make you question their relationship status.
